With not much to play, Cincinnati hopes to finish the season on a positive note and avoid a bottom-place finish against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

In his comeback last week, he allowed his four earned runs on his eight hits in four innings in his 10–2 loss to the Brewers in Milwaukee.

Leading the Reds’ offense is third baseman Kyle Farmer, who has been a hard hitter for the Cubs this season. In the series in Chicago earlier this month, he went 5-for-12 with his triples, two homers, and four RBIs. In his 10 games with the Cubs that year, Farmer had a . 439 batting average, triples, four homers, and 13 RBIs. 255 with 14 homers, 76 RBIs and 58 runs scored.
